RAZ ART Shower Commode

Description

The RAZ ART (Attendant Rotational Tilt) mobile shower commode chair tilts up to 40° to provide extra pressure reduction and comfort. The unique frame design utilizes a patented, dual-arc, orbital tilt system that allows for the smallest footprint and lowest tilt effort of any chair on the market. Unique, aluminium frame design provides two ranges of tool-less height adjustment (20”-23” and 24”-27”). Patent-pending tilt-locking system of the RAZ ART eliminates cable “looping,” which is prevalent in other designs

The RAZ ART mobile shower commode chair comes standard with the Ischial & Pelvic Alignment System (IPAS), adjustable-tension back upholstery, moulded headrest and fixture, 5” dual-locking casters, flip-up padded armrests, and a commode pan. The easy-to-clean, aluminium frame fits over most toilets and is designed for easy side and front access by the user or attendant.

Why should you use a shower chair?

Shower chairs are very beneficial if you are disabled and need help getting around and using the bathroom. Especially if you’re not steady on your feet, a slippy floor can be a nightmare. Shower chairs give you something to sit on to keep you safe and supported if you’re washing or using the toilet. Shower chairs also give you the chance to take care of yourself and maintain good hygiene. You can use the toilet, wash and shower with ease.

If independence is a concern, then you might choose a self-propelled shower chair if you are strong enough to push yourself around. Self-propelled shower chairs give you independence and the ability to move around your bathroom with no hassle. They’re also particularly versatile pieces of equipment because shower chairs can be doubled up as commodes. Many models have an aperture that allows for a removable commode pan to be fitted.
